The Lord said to Gideon, “The people who are with you are too many for Me to give Midian into their hands, for Israel would become boastful, saying, ‘My own power has delivered me.’”

Judges 7:2

The horse is prepared for the day of battle,
But victory belongs to the Lord.

Proverbs 21:31

We can prepare all we like for the challenges we face. There is wisdom in being ready to go when the call goes up. Ultimately, however, it is the Lord who fights the battles, and the Lord who deserves credit for the victory.

So when God tells you that He has given everything you need to win, believe Him!
